Amsterdam


Finally it's the weekend! This week has been crazy for me and finally I get to relax. Last weekend my friends and I went to Amsterdam. The city is so beautiful and full of history. Every corner you turn is a picture perfect view. This trip we visited the Heineken Factory, the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum. Each were so interesting in their own way. My favorite was the Anne Frank House. The whole experience was very moving, but I was so glad to get to see what the house was like, since I read her book and am interested in that time period. Even though the lines are long to get in, definitely try to go if you ever have the chance, preferably really early in the morning or later in the evening (shorter lines).

This trip was a little different since we didn't stay  in a hostel. This time we stayed on a boat Bed & Breakfast called the Maria Alberta! It was so cool, and the owner, Captain Lucas, even made us a homemade breakfast in the morning. The only bad part was that I slept on the top bunk of our tiny room and there was no ladder to climb up. I had to monkey crawl up to my 2 1/2 foot wide bed! 

Other things you MUST do in Amsterdam are eat pancakes at the Pancake Bakery, eat a waffle and wander (to burn off all the food, of course). Amsterdam is a walkable city, and you never know what you'll find. We turned down one corner and found a whole street of designer shops; we love window shopping ha! Overall, the trip was very fun, but now I'm excited to spend the weekend relaxing in London--home sweet home.
Thanks for reading!
